Can anyone give me some advice as to which area of Tokyo is the best to choose accommodation in? I will be there for a week and I'm trying to find location that will be convenient for all the sightseeing that "should" be done....
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
If you're willing to pay the price, shinjuku or shibuya are probably your best bet. They are both transfer points for a lot of different train lines, so you can get to anywhere you need with little trouble. Shinjuku can be expensive, so if you head to the Nishi-Shinjuku area you can find cheaper accommodation and it's within walking distance of the train station.
